    Federal judge has stayed the deportation of ‘travelers’ at US airports under Trump’s orders. ACLU must have had one of theirs on the golf course letting the judge win.

    Worked my butt off at the new restaurant today. It was fun. Glad to be back in a kitchen I can call “my kitchen” and mean it. Oh, and they feed you quite well.

    Sharon, I’m so glad you’re back commenting here.

    Just bought a brand new hardcover of Mailboxes and Old Barns and told Amazon to ship it to my folks.

    I noticed that Chechnya was missing from the recent list of nations.

    I’m sure everybody on Boylston Street understands.

    In 2013, it should have been obvious that we shouldn’t have given them our hard-earned dollars for their every need for seven years. They were white guys, too!

    You have anything Islamic in your entire internet social history, GOODBYE.

      The entire Chechnya thing was a pipedream anyway, in the nearly twenty years the wars went on there was never any doubt Russia would let Chechnya leave the Federation. It was Putin who fonally solved their Moslem problem, he flattened Grozny to the ground, almost obliterated it. Brought the Chechen Moslems to the table most riki-tik.

      Along those lines, yoday a few dozen NOLA Moslems and Moslem suck-ups staged a demonstration at the Armstrong airport. Brrrrr…angry Moslems st a US airport, what could possibly go wrong? Also a group estimated by the overestimating preess to be ‘in the hundreds’ showed up at city hall to protest Trumps ‘ban the bomb…er’ orders. Being Moslems it was understandable they’d show up,on a Christian day off…whoops…to protest. Hizzonuh the mayor wasn’t there even though there were black attendees he could have been photographed standing near.

      Trump’s temporary immigration ban set a mental anchor in your brain that is frankly shocking. It will make his eventual permanent immigration plan (”extreme vetting”) look tame by comparison. The Persuasion Filter says that’s his strategy. Because that’s ALWAYS his strategy. He acts the same way every time. He wrote a book about it. He talks about it publicly. Then he does it right in front of us, over and over. And no matter how many times he does it, half the country still thinks the opening offer is the real one.

      I’ve mentioned in this blog a few times that persuasion works even when the subject of the persuasion recognizes all the techniques as they happen. This is a perfect case. The left has been watching Trump make big offers and dial them back for the past year. And yet they still think this time it will be different. The Persuasion Filter says that 70-year old Trump will act the same way today as he has for the past several decades: Big first offer, then negotiate.

We’re stuck with them until the day that Red States wake up and realize that this republic forces us to be tied to those who will destroy us.”

      Let’s be honest here, the Hollyork crowd preaches to the mouthbreathers about saving this, that or the other but that’s we who should do as they are above all of that. Remember the recent ‘worst drought ever’ in California where people were asked to have friends mail in water? Remember those stars whose palatial estates still had lush green meadow-like lawns and huge swimming pools just parked there, unused, evaporating untold gallons of water? How many drive Priuses? Wear the same clothes twice?

      No need to apologize, Rhea. I’m well aware of what CA is like, and what people think of it. AWD isn’t saying anything new: he’s right–CA will never secede; its intelligence will just recede (further).

      Of course, something miraculous could happen. We just witnessed something miraculous, so we know it’s possible.

    Release Date:
    January 29, 2017

    For Immediate Release
    Office of the Press Secretary
    Contact: 202-282-8010

    WASHINGTON – The Department of Homeland Security will continue to enforce all of President Trump’s Executive Orders in a manner that ensures the safety and security of the American people. President Trump’s Executive Orders remain in place—prohibited travel will remain prohibited, and the U.S. government retains its right to revoke visas at any time if required for national security or public safety. President Trump’s Executive Order affects a minor portion of international travelers, and is a first step towards reestablishing control over America’s borders and national security.

    Approximately 80 million international travelers enter the United States every year. Yesterday, less than one percent of the more than 325,000 international air travelers who arrive every day were inconvenienced while enhanced security measures were implemented. These individuals went through enhanced security screenings and are being processed for entry to the United States, consistent with our immigration laws and judicial orders.

    The Department of Homeland Security will faithfully execute the immigration laws, and we will treat all of those we encounter humanely and with professionalism. No foreign national in a foreign land, without ties to the United States, has any unfettered right to demand entry into the United States or to demand immigration benefits in the United States.

    The Department of Homeland Security will comply with judicial orders; faithfully enforce our immigration laws, and implement President Trump’s Executive Orders to ensure that those entering the United States do not pose a threat to our country or the American people.

    stella, what are your thoughts about posts of the talk shows mirroring next door? I get so annoyed with the advertisement/video certificate errors/warnings I don’t want to go there even to post “Mornin’ WeeWeed”. The 400 music videos and animated images that also use that WP library function don’t help.

My laptop can’t download anything (like adblock, some media, etc.) because of security settings put on it by a guy in Slowdeatha (for which I am grateful – I have no virus problems) but sometimes those ads and videos flat lock me up, I have to restart, delete cookies/crap, etc., etc., and it’s just not worth the time to mess with it all day long.

              Statement Regarding Recent Executive Order Concerning Extreme Vetting

              “America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave.

              We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror. To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.

              This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days.
              I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering.”
